ULRICH (ULERY/ULREY) Family History
Stephen ULRICH/ULERY (Jr.)3 (~1710-1785)
121. Stephen Ulrich (Ulery) (Jr.)3 was born about 1710, reportedly in Swebeland (perhaps Schwabenland [Swabia], which is now divided between the modern-day states of Baden-Württemberg and Bayern [Bavaria]), He is also reported to be from Mannheim, Baden, which lies along the Upper Rhein (Oberrhein) River to the northwest of historic Schwabenland. He appears to have first married an Anna Margretha Makin* on January 10, 1729/1730, in Schriesheim, at the foothills to the east of Mannheim, Baden, and immigrated to Pennsylvania. They had at least one son. Anna died before 1740 and Stephen remarried to Elizabeth Greib (Cripe) and had as many as nine more children:

|121B.||David Ulrich (Sr.)||1746||1823||(77)|

|(121J.)||John Ulrich (Sr.)||14 Oct 1764||23 Aug 1838||(74)|
Stephen purchaced land from Hans Jacob Stutzman (III) (1705-1775) in modern-day Adams County, Pennsylvania, in 1742, which was then in Lancaster County, later in York County (1749), and finally Adams County (1800).
In 1752 Stephen purchased land north of Clear Spring in modern-day Washington County (then in Frederick County).[Heiss 1979] At least three of the last five children were born there.
Stephen and Hans Jacob Stutzman (IV) (1705-1775) are said to have been naturalized in 1767.[Heiss 1979]
Elizabeth (Greib/Cripe) Ulrich died about 1780 in Washington County, Maryland. She was around 60 years old.
Stephen Ulrich died a few years later in 1785 in Peters Township, Washington County, Maryland.* He was around the age of 74.
After Elizabeth's and Stephen's deaths, several of the children lived in Franklin County, Pennsylvania, and at least three moved across the Allegheny Mountains to Woodbury Township, Bedford County, Pennsylvania, beginning as early as the 1780's with the migration of Elizabeth and Daniel MILLER. Their children continued west into Ohio beginning around 1803 where Elizabeth, Daniel, and three of Elizabeth's siblings (David, Stephen, and Mary) settled first in Preble County and later in Montgomery County.
The last three daughters (Susannah, Hannah, and Mary) all married Puderbaugh (Puterbaugh/Butterbaugh) brothers. Two stayed on in Franklin and Bedford Counties, Pennsylvania.
